Due to lack of full vascularization, the meniscus relies on diffusion through the extracellular matrix to deliver small (e.g., nutrients) and large (e.g., proteins) to resident cells. Under normal physiological conditions, the meniscus undergoes up to 20% compressive strains. While previous studies characterized solute diffusivity in the uncompressed meniscus, to date, little is known about the diffusive transport under physiological strain levels. This information is crucial to fully understand the pathophysiology of the meniscus. The objective of this study was to investigate strain-dependent diffusive properties of the meniscus fibrocartilage. Tissue samples were harvested from the central portion of porcine medial menisci and tested via fluorescence recovery after photobleaching to measure diffusivity of fluorescein (332 Da) and 40 K Da dextran (D40K) under 0%, 10%, and 20% compressive strain. Specifically, average diffusion coefficient and anisotropic ratio, defined as the ratio of the diffusion coefficient in the direction of the tissue collagen fibers to that orthogonal, were determined. For all the experimental conditions investigated, fluorescein diffusivity was statistically faster than that of D40K. Also, for both molecules, diffusion coefficients significantly decreased, up to ∼45%, as the strain increased. In contrast, the anisotropic ratios of both molecules were similar and not affected by the strain applied to the tissue. This suggests that compressive strains used in this study did not alter the diffusive pathways in the meniscus. Our findings provide new knowledge on the transport properties of the meniscus fibrocartilage that can be leveraged to further understand tissue pathophysiology and approaches to tissue restoration.
